    Sometimes connection with site becomes very low. A long response time is needed, or no response occurs for webpage. It is strange that the connection rate decreases gradually after many time clicks, although the first connection may be of high speed.

    Could somebody help me to deal with this issue?

    Where are you located? China? South Korea? Or some other Asian country?

    The Hive Workshop servers are either in USA or EU, I am unsure which (since they moved a few times). Geographically that is a lot of distance to travel so latency will be bad. If any of the hops are overloaded then latency can get worse and potentially packet loss can occur.

    If you are in China concepts like the Great Firewall that separate its networks can also add latency and cause packet loss.

    Yeah, I would say it is an issue on your end.
    I haven't had any connection issues with Hive at all - unless the site is down, but that does
    not happen often.

    Not everyone is fortunate enough to live in a place where this is an option.

    In addition, some countries are VERY restrictive to speed when accessing foreign servers.
